Welcome to the home page of Maidstone Wargames Society.

We are a small, friendly, society covering a range of periods; Ancients through Medieval, Napoleonic, ACW, 20th Century; on land, at sea, or in the air. From time to time we venture into deep space or to worlds of fantasy.

We are a pretty cosmopolitan bunch and anyone interested in other periods would be most welcome. There is usually at least one game open to any member at each meeting.

For the last few year's we have held an Open Day where we open our doors and put on a few games to showcase the club and hopefully attract new members. This year's is on June 24th between 11am and 4pm.

We aim to put on a demonstration or participation game at local shows with a new game being created every year. 2014's effort, 'Somewhere in Belgium' proved to be popular and even picked up a couple of awards. For 2015 we presented a Spy-fi participation game, 'Snowfall'. 2016's offering, a 3mm scale modern game entitled 'The Road to Homs '82', was a success on its first outing, winning Best Demonstration Game at Cavalier, followed by Best Scenery at SELWG later in the year.

Campaigns currently underway include WWI and Napoleonic naval campaigns and an intermittent 20mm Vietnam campaign. A Dragon Rampant fantasy campaign is also in its early stages.

Also running is a hotly contested Field of Glory league with regular games going on almost every meeting

In our Christmas meetings we tend to run fun games, last year was a large aerial dogfight with 1/72nd models. In the summer there is also a DBA Tournament for the more historically minded.

We meet from 10.00 to 17.00, on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month, at a new venue, Linton Village Hall, Linton Hill (A229), Maidstone. For further information please phone club secretary Brian Simons on (0780) 3009504, or you can contact him via e-mail.
